Linked to a major congress centre, the Palais des Congrès, and close to the historic centre of the city, the five-star Mövenpick Hotel Mansour Eddahbi Marrakech will have 501 rooms and 5,600 sqm of event space.

Costing approximately £53m, the hotel is a 15-minute walk from the historic heart of Marrakech and just 15 minutes’ drive from Marrakech Menara Airport.

Moroccan architectural details and orange tree gardens complement leisure facilities, including a spa, gym, swimming pool, whilst seven dining and entertainment venues at the resort include a signature Moroccan restaurant and nightclub.

"Although it is usually associated with leisure tourism, Marrakech continues to be a hub for business and incentive travel. Owing to the world-class facilities within the hotel as well as at the Palais des Congrès, attracting MICE business especially from Europe, the Gulf states and the US will be a key focus," said Alan O’Dea, senior vice president Africa for Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts.

A dedicated entrance connects the hotel to Morocco’s largest convention centre, the renowned Palais des Congrès, which will also be operated by Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts.
